I like Girlish Number a lot, so I'm somewhat disappointed at all the hate Chitose gets.



Yeah, she's self-centered and oblivious, ungrateful to her brother, and rude in general. But is that different from any of us? I have certainly walked around like I'm the next big thing, blamed external factors for my own failures, and abused my friendships without realizing it. This makes me a normal human being - not all that good of a human being, but normal. Being able to put up with people is important, and realizing people have to put up with our own failings is just as important. Chitose actually has it kinda tough - she has to learn to deal with herself. That isn't easy. And I too have coworkers I don't like, but I think it's wrong for me to hope that they fail.

Besides, Chitose is incredibly stylish.That egg shirt.



I think we should be good to Chitose, like Momoka.

You only have to hate Shinn Asuka.

You can like anybody as long as you hate Shinn Asuka.

A lot of people like Chitose, not really sure what you're talking about.

I like to hate her.

She's like Aqua from Konosuba. That kind of selfish prick that is basically a never ending mine of pure grade A schadenfreude that comes from seeing them get knocked down a peg or two.

That's kind of the main point to characters like these. You are supposed to hate them on some level.

This right here, but don't forget Kirino Kosaka either. She deserves the hate as well.

You don't have to hate anyone.

I don't watch the show, but that's just true regardless. You never have to hate anyone.

There's a character in one of my favorite shows that pretty much everyone hates. She's on pretty much every top-10-worst-characters-ever list... but I really don't care. She's human. She has human flaws, and apparently people can't handle that. I think they just don't like her because she reminds them of themselves.

Well you're not really meant to initially like her or at least that is what I get from how the author has built her up. She seems like you are meant to come to like her as she progresses.

That said I don't get why people genuinely wish ill of her She is lazy and arrogant but she is also green and naive and quite frankly her negative behaviour has been encouraged by several people (including her somewhat hypocritical brother) and any positives were never reinforced.

Personally though I dislike Nanami way more. With how cynical the series is I highly doubt she really is just an obtusely optimistic workaholic; there is something behind that imo.

The difference for me is that Kirino could not be the MC's sister - instead some childhood friend or something - and she'd be looked at more fondly.

Shinn Asuka could be Buddah, Michael Jordan, David Tennant's Doctor Who, and Jesus-Fucking-Christ all rolled into one and would still need to be hated.

No, we must love the Chitose, and the Momoka.

I stopped watching after episode 4. And it's not just the MC being a complete asshat, but I didn't like any of the cast.

So it got droped

This is a good answer. You're right, of course - there are characters we're meant to dislike, and disliking people is part of life. I guess what bothers me is hoping people fail. Maybe they "deserve" what's coming, but that doesn't mean we should want it to happen.
